One of the most demanding tasks faced by teacher educators and mentors is providing on-going, immediate and high-quality feedback for students during their professional learning (Debuse, Lawley and Shibl, 2008). This results in limited opportunities for formative assessment that benefits the students as they move through their practicum experience. This workshop is in two parts. Part 1 explores the opportunities and impact of a purpose-built website application that manages communication between pre-service teachers, university academics and site supervisors. The workshop will also show how users accessed the system when it was video-enabled and discuss opportunities for further use of the system. Session two will take participants through a process that takes criteria for WIL course components and prepares them for the tracker tool. Participants who bring their course outlines and web enabled tablets or PC will be offered the opportunity to develop a WIL feedback tool for their students and supervisors.
